Remembering Two Men Whimpering in the Broken Jaw of Our Lost Kingdom
In 1284, Hamelin, Germany hired a rat killer to rid the residents of the flea carrier bringing them the Black Plague. For some reason, the mayor refuses to pay him after he supposedly accomplishes the task. The rat killer, piping beautiful music, leads 130 of the town’s children out of a town—and the hypnotized children are never heard from again.

I hope you find the answer somewhere in this column. In 1990 we had 66 billionaires and only ten superyachts of more than 250 feet in length. In 2022 we have about 760 billionaires, are adding more monthly, and they own 170 superyachts. In those 32 years the median wage has risen only 20%. In 2021, the leading dealer in superyachts in Palm Beach, Florida and others around the world sold 887 superyachts and took orders for 1,000 more. …
